Here's some faves / highlights/ vegan
suggestions to get you started :
Golden Lotus 1301 Franklin Street Oakland 94612
Incredibly tasty Vietnamese- all vegetarian in Downtown Oakland. Go on

though "dough contains refined sugar". Good Pint+ Slice deals.
Picante 1328 6th Street Berkeley 94710. ThereÃÆ’Ã™s not a lot to eat
924 Gilman Street. Don't be scared off by all the yuppies and their
kids, this Mexican Restaurant has a Vegetarian/ Vegan menu with
Burritos, tacos and more. Not bargain basement, but tasty.

and more.Also with a location at 1777 Fulton Street San Francisco 94117
Tacqueria Can-Cun 2288 Mission Street. 94110 Always get voted "best
Vegetarian burrito", but people in San Francisco can argue that like
New Yorkers and Chicago-ans argue Hot Dogs and Pizza. Authentic, which
means not for vegans. Stand outside, look diagonally across the street
, shed a tear for Mission records ( R.I.P.).
Thai House Express 901 Larkin 94109 Fast,cheap thai Food in the
tenderloin. Vegetarian- friendly and open late.

Mateo, Incredible and inexpensive South Indian Food. Our favorite
restaurant in the bay Area.
Amoeba Music -http://www.amoebamusic.com/ A
must visit in San
Francisco-Grocery store-sized warehouse of music! Tons of vinyl, 45's,
budget CD's and Lp's, and a decent new punk selection. The Berkeley
Store has better selection of new hardcore and punk, seems a little
cheaper, and also seems to get in a wider range of oddball, obscure and
unique used records., while the SF store seems to get more rarities.
Aquarius Records 1055 Valencia Street San Francisco 94110
Although they only have a small vinyl
section, they have an unbeatable import selection of indie,
experimental, alternative CD's as well as one of the best Metal
Sections in town and are San Francisco's oldest independent music
store. The original Location in the castro between 18th and 19th on
Castro was where the various members of the Dead kennedy's placed
bulletin board "form a band" ads to eventually Form the DK's.

them online. This weblink takes
you to their Ebay store filled with heaps or records, comics, role
playing games, toys, memorabilia and more. Heaps of punk records, new
Grooves 1797 Market Street San Francisco, CA 94103
Collectors vinyl store of all types of music, the cool thing about this
store is â€œtheyâ€™ll give anything a goâ€ so you then find yourself turning
up the KRYZYS LP from Poland or something equally obscure.
Mod Lang 6328 Fairmount Ave, Rear. El Cerrito, CA
Specializes in British Imports, Brit-Pop and
Indie but also used vinyl and rarities.
Lots of locations in the Bay
Area, the Berkeley Store ( 2401 Telegraph) is the most vinyl-heavy with
a good new and used punk selection.
Red Devil Records 894 Fourth Street San Rafael 94901
Just across the Golden Gate Bridge in Downtown San Rafael, Red Devil
probably has the best selection of punk rarities in the Bay Area making
it well worth the trip and $5 bridge toll. Great store that also stocks
new punk and has lots of obscure new hard-to-get 7" releases.
www.streetlightrecords.com/ There's three Bay Area
locations- the San Francisco Location which has vinyl upstairs and while not
punk heavy, has been home to more than one incredible score and is
always worth a look ( 2350 Market Street 94114 (near Castro). The
24th street Location (3979 24th Street 94114) has a good
selection and again â€œyou never knowâ€factor. Solid section of new punk.
